Oh I hate to be the one to tell you this but……it cannot be viewed…it is still saying it is private.

I have a theory….Hannah and Jill are conspiring so Hannah gets steak on a nightly basis for say – hmm – a week or so and then presto…the videos will work.

Don’t feel bad….I am still trying to figure out how to upload pics of Tuck in photobucket so that you can all see my handsome boy.

I saw it, too! Such a dainty eater you are, Hannah. And what a good job to be eating with a fork from the good dishes. Keep those ampuversary videos coming!

We will be home tomorrow and I’ll upload a video of the Turbotail. The tablet won’t let me log into YouTube.

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

That was worth the wait.  She is precious.  Lovey big girl!

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

hahahahhahhahahahha I was about to say “she’s so dainty” and then whoosh and it was gone. Now I know hannah is a big girl but I had no idea her mouth was so big. And I didn’t realize she was similar to a vacuum cleaner. I mean. it just went woosh!


I also like how she carried the dish in the beginning. like she knew she was about to be served.


Yay for hannah. you are right, she needs to have many, many, many more ampuversareries

Oh my gosh, first she carries her bowl, then she eats a steak like a dainty little Bichon or something! TOOOOO CUTE!

If that were my dogs the video would have been  about 3 seconds long! one bite and done winker I’ll have to video our next mealtime when I remember so you can see what I mean, LOL

Barret was diagnosed with Hemangiopericytoma May 16, 2013. Front left leg/scapula/pectoral muscle was amputated on June 11, 2013 and we've never looked back. Follow our story on and read my column on That Pet Blog
